Does EMS actually work? Imagine being able to build muscle, tone your abs, and burn more fat without putting in the hard work or spending hours at the gym. That sounded like a dream until it wasn’t. You can make it come true by using EMS, or electro muscular stimulation.
EMS is growing increasingly popular, with many gyms offering a specific program or recommending it to their members. Top celebrities and athletes like Tom Holland, David Haye, and Lionel Messi have tried it, confirming that EMS works. EMS can give significant improvements in as little as 20 minutes of exercise. Does it sound real? Is it safe and worth trying?
What is EMS?
How EMS work? Electronic muscle stimulation (EMS) is a technique that involves delivering small pulses of electricity to the muscles. It requires using a machine to send electrical impulses to your targeted muscle groups using electrodes (adhesive pads) that are placed directly on your skin. The impulses from EMS cause the muscles to contract. These contractions can increase blood flow, allowing your body to recover faster, increase muscular strength, and reduce injuries.
The EMS device is available at gyms, physical therapy, and rehabilitation clinics. Many are also designed and sold for use at home, like Massfit belt series.
What Does Science Say About EMS?
Many research studies have found that using EMS as part of a training method gives positive results. According to this 2012 study, EMS is a promising modern training method that improves strength and motor abilities. In this study, all of the EMS methods that they tested were found to significantly improve strength, speed, jump, sprint ability, and power.
However, like with any other technology, it will give you the best results if it is used correctly. To get the maximum results, you need to combine the setting, frequency, and power to your fitness level and current physical body strength. But don’t worry. The Massfit belt series uses a combination of EMS and TENS technology (which we will talk about in a different article). We specifically collaborate with EMS and TENS professionals to provide you with the ideal stimulation and intensity levels so you can use them easily from anywhere at any time.

What Are The Benefits of EMS?
Now let’s get down to the benefits. The actual advantage of using EMS, as explained above, is to tone up your body and provide a quick recovery. But, the biggest benefit is that it can save you time while delivering a significant result without putting you at risk of injury. Unlike traditional strength training with heavy weights or movement, EMS does not create additional strain on joints or ligaments.
Some of the many benefits of training with EMS include:
- Saves time
- Reduces muscle tension and pain
- Builds muscle strength
- Lower the risks of injury
- Helps in weight loss
- Improves posture
So, is EMS actually work? Training with an EMS belt, for instance, will allow you to gain muscle or recover from anywhere and at any time. It is simple to wear and unnoticeable because of its thin shape, making it comfortable to wear under a shirt. You can use it while you’re in the middle of a meeting or while doing housework. Of course, exercise is still necessary for the best results, but if you’re too busy or don’t have the time, wearing Massfit can help you catch up.
